or New York City parents, no subject is more carefully weighed than the choice of school. Inevitably, folk wisdom develops about which schools are considered “best”—often the topic of heated debate, with schools’ differences debated in microscopic detail. Parents will move across town to give their children access to a certain public school, while others will pay tens of thousands of dollars annually for a private school they are convinced will educate their youngsters and position them well for life ahead. The rankings included here are based on consultation, advice and ratings from over 80 experts—school coaches, educational professionals and activist parents who are deeply immersed in the world of New York City schools. The ones listed here are all marked by excellence, and while many might disagree with these rankings (or some omissions), they represent the result of an extended investigation to capture the intense feelings that attach to the city’s great schools. Any such list is by nature selective. Winnowed from the city’s thousands of public and private schools, from preschool to high school based on expert advice, these schools were then rated according to six key dimensions: buildings and facilities, faculty, culture and arts, curriculum, family involvement and athletics. This publication’s readership is concentrated in Manhattan and Brooklyn, which these rankings reflect—not to overlook the tremendous wealth of great schools to be found throughout the five boroughs. These scores formed the basis for the ordering and the grades assigned for each of the seven lists included here: preschools, public elementary schools, private elementary schools, public middle schools, private middle schools, public high schools and private high schools. Schools that offer a wider

grade range were rated separately for those ages, so certain schools reappear under preschools, elementary, middle and high school. The school ratings are represented here by letter grades, based on that expert input and advice. Each school’s grades can show relative strengths and weakness. In determining the overall ranking of schools, some factors counted more than others: faculty and curriculum can more than compensate for a school’s less-thanstellar physical plant. But in many cases, a standout athletic or cultural program can be the spark that makes a school stand out, even beyond its strength in teaching. It can’t be emphasized enough that rankings such as these may reveal little about finding the school that is right for your child—or even get in the way. Admissions consultant Roxana Reid of Smart City Kids cautions strongly that ratings such as these, as well as surveys released by the Department of Education, should be bal-

anced against individual factors: “Families should weigh schools according to what is the best fit for their child and family.” The determination to gain admission to a particular school places heavy stress on many families and children, and sometimes blinds parents to the real strengths of a school they might be inclined to overlook. The issue of Scooter which this guide accompanies is filled with advice about navigating the admissions process—which includes managing expectations, both your own and your child’s. Nevertheless, there’s no fighting the desire to know which school is No. 1. And there’s no fighting the urge to argue over someone else’s view. These rankings will doubtless be the spark for such arguments or debates. But the foundation for those arguments will be the different qualities that guarantee that each of the schools listed here is the “right school” for plenty of children—maybe yours! —The Editors S

It’s no longer elementary, little Watson. Middle schools guide students’ academic and personal development as they approach young adulthood and higher education. Usually, these students will carry on to upper school in the same institution, so take the time to make sure it’s one they will love.
